3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is hoppy, spruce and grass and a little malt, caramel. Pours a clear copper amber/brown, with a big off white head mostly diminishing with excellent lacing. The taste is medium bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Very good.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bomber into Spiegelau IPA glass. Strong head that dissipates moderately quickly. Leaves a bit of head on the top of the beer. Little lacing. Nice ruby color. Strong carbonation. Moderately opaque. Nose is great. Fruit and pine. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy with a bit of a carbonated bite. Taste is nice with mild sweetness. Strong hop bitterness, though not much aftertaste. Good maltiness. Pine, orange juice, raisin, and biscuit. A very enjoyable beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fresh bomber poured into a Duvel glass. Pours a somewhat hazy copper red with an inch of thick off white head that leaves nice lacing. Typical aromas of pine, caramel, citrus, and toasted bread. You can tell it’s a red. Upon first sip the beer has a citric, piney quality up front that is quickly met with caramel and bread malts, maybe even sourdough. It’s a tasty red that sticks to your mouth and doesn’t have much noticeable alcohol or anything. A solid beer for the style.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is stray with some hops. Pours amber with a medium white head. Taste is heavy hops and fruit. Palate is fittingly stray and sticky. Overall a really pleasant beer which reminds much of a DIPA.

on tap at d’s. Clear orangish red with no head. Aroma is lots of citrus and a bit of grass. Flavor is similar...quite a bit of citrusy hops and a tad bit of caramel malt. Body is lightly carbonated and a bit oily. This is kind of like a troegs nugget nectar that didn’t quite make it.

The aroma had big cascade hops! Citrus, pine, grapefruits. The flavor was the same except a slight malty note. The beer poured a golden orange color w/ red highlights; thin head and lacing. The mouthfeel was light and creamy.

Poured to glass...appearance is a clear amber color with not much of a head. So so on the lacing. Aroma is delightful, fresh strawberries, hops and pine. Slightly bitter taste with a long hoppy finish. Enjoyable beer from one of my favorite brewers. Would recommend.

Flaska från systemet - maltig doft, lite mörkare och något grumlig. Komplex maltig smak och en fyllig kropp.

Pours a reddish amber color with a thick ivory colored rocky head. Some earthy hop aromas but not a lot in the nose. Medium bodied with a nice soft mouth feel. A great balance of earthy hop and malt flavors. It finishes with a touch of lingering bitterness in the finish. Well done!
